Although we're happy to report that STEM in the Park grows substantially each year with record attendance topping out at over 5,600 people in 2018, the sponsorship growth has not matched this attendee growth and we are not able to provide a full lunch for free to all attendees. STEM in the Park will continue to offer FREE healthy snacks and bottled water at the event.

We are in need of additional sponsors. Organizations are invited to help sponsor this large-scale and family-friendly event, an energetic and meaningful day of hands-on and inquiry-based learning.

Sponsorship information is available
